    We are pleased to announce the continuation of an ongoing postdoctoral
program in music cognition.  The post-doctoral Music Cognition Fellowship
plan at The Ohio State University is designed to offer advanced research
training in music perception and cognition.  Two post-doctoral fellowships
are awarded annually, one in psychology and one in music.  The fellowship
is designed to further a candidate's training in research concerned with a
variety of aspects of music cognition (perception, performance, general
modeling, etc.).  This award is part of a larger program to enhance the
study of music cognition at The Ohio State University.


Individuals who have held the doctorate for no more than seven years, and
who will possess the doctorate before the first day of the post-doctoral
fellowship tenure, are eligible to apply.  Applications from individuals
whose primary training is in neither music nor psychology are welcome with
the provision that their background fits well with relevant research
interests in music cognition at Ohio State.

In the  DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY, fellows are eligible for reappointment
for a maximum up to 2-3 years of support; the norm will be a one-to-two
year appointment with three-year appointments awarded only in special

In the SCHOOL OF MUSIC, fellows are eligible for reappointment for a

first day of September of the award year, although special arrangements for
alternative appointment dates are possible.

March 31, 1998. Applications and all supporting documentation should
have arrived by that date to insure full consideration by the
